Jive Party favourites and why not?? When you’re guaranteed a night of superb rockin’ and honkin’ rhythm and blues from Laura B and her septet, in the upbeat style of Ruth Brown, Big Maybelle and Lavern Baker.
This eight-piece good time, Rhythm and Blues/Swing band features the extraordinarily talented and lovely Laura B on vocals and some of the best authentic sounding rhythm and blues players in Europe whose credentials speak for themselves. Comprised of members from many bands who have played the circuit across the UK, Europe, USA and even Japan. Laura’s all-star band includes members of Ocean’s Seven, Juke Joint Jump, Sugar Ray’s Flying Fortress, The Big Six, Alabama Slammers, The Mike Sanchez Band and Jools Holland’s R’n’B Orchestra, to name but a few. Also featuring the amazing Chris Corcoran on guitar, Lady Laura and the guys guarantee a big beat sound and performance to match many of the great R’n’B artistes of the fifties.
